A special message from Ed Scollon
Co-principal Investigator,
Valcour Bay Research Project

Since its initial appearance in early July, my ability to contribute to the expansion of The Valcour Bay Research Project on the Web has suffered.  Speaking engagements and the continuation of the survey have demanded a great deal of time.  The 2001 survey year has brought many new successes.  I hope to be sharing those successes and the remainder of the project with you shortly.  The story of the New York and the death of Lt. Thomas Rogers can be accessed through our links to Lake Champlain Maritime Museum’s website.

One thing that can’t be delayed any further, is the long-overdue “thank you” to the men and women who serve our United States Coast Guard at its Burlington, Vermont station.  Besides tirelessly guarding the surface and shores of Lake Champlain and making them safe for all who enjoy them, the U.S.C.G. also played an instrumental role in the recovery of the New York’s cannon on June 30th.  The members of the Valcour Bay Research Project would like to thank the following U.S.C.G. members:  BM1 Kevin Erwin, MK1 Ed Anderson, BM1 Robert Wooten, SN Denny Doyle, SA Duane Lam, BMCS James R. Stuedle, BM3 Stephanie Jurczak, FN Jamish Vega  and  DCCS Joe Allard.
